Rumblings and grumblings surround Wang, Dice-K


In what would be a highly anticipated match-up halfway across the globe as well as in Boston and New York, rumors are surfacing that the pitching-strapped Yanks may have Chien-Ming Wang make his next rehab start not in the minors but in Fenway Park against Daisuke Matsuzaka on ESPN this Sunday. But Brian Cashman has denied these rumors. Personally, I would think Wang is ready for a Major League start. If his hammy’s feeling up for it, why have him waste innings pitching at an A-ball game when the Big League club is in desperate need of hurlers?

    I’m pretty sure Wanger’s making a rehab start with Tampa on Thursday, which would make a Sunday start pretty unrealistic.

    The idea – which probably won’t happen – would be to push back the rehab start to Sunday basically. He wouldn’t pitch Thursday if he were to go up against Boston.

    That has bad news written all over it. I’d rather let Wright (or DeSalvo) take one on the chin rather than Wanger forego a rehab start.
